Marvel had a good day today! He was a bit distracted in his first session but quickly settled and worked really hard on his skills!
It was a PLEASURE training with your pooch today and we look forward to continuing to help you achieve your goals, skills and improve your relationship.
Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!
"I trained hard, I played hard! Please find below the skills we worked on and my results. I look forward to showing you what I learnt and working on them more with you!" If you have any questions about the skills we trained please feel free to contact todays trainer."
|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: First session Marvel worked on his drop skill. Today we worked in the Cattery for added distraction level (cats, birds & rabbits). Marvel barked a couple of times when first coming into the Cattery but once in a drop and focusing on the trainer he wasn’t as interested in the other animals. He broke early a few times but was easily redirected back into position by saying uh uh. Keep pushing his drop in different environments and with different distractions.
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)
|Comment: In Marvels second session we worked on some Paws Up and beginning to learn pivot. This is a great way to build up his rear end awareness. Marvel gets very bouncy in his paws up so the first part of the session was focusing on his duration and holding the skill without bouncing on the pod. From there the trainer stood next to Marvel with him on their left and lured him to move around the pod. He was able to take a few steps at a time before stepping off the pod but with more practise he will be pivoting around in no time!
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: Marvels final session we worked on his loose lead. Today we worked in the carpark around a few other dogs and while lawns being mowed. He got a bit distracted at the start and was pulling ahead, each time he did this we stopped and turned the other way. He settled throughout the session and began engaging well with his trainer. Keep working on this in different environments to push the skill further.
We recommend your next step should be…

B: Great Work (80-89%) I mostly understand, Almost neat & complete! Needs practice in some areas. Mild distractions
C: Well Done (70-79%) Some good progress. Needs work, but on my way. Still learning. Low distractions.
D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
E: Unable to Progress. Needs major focus, seek further options to assist.
X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
